"All of our division directors are on alert. We want to ensure citizens stay as safe as possible," said Shelby County Mayor Mark H. Luttrell, Jr.
Shelby County's new Emergency Operations Center at 1075 Mullins Station Road will be activated should there be large-scale power outages or roads become impassable.
"We'll be monitoring the weather throughout the evening and will be calling in staff if conditions warrant," said Bob Nations, Director of the Shelby County Office of Preparedness.
A Winter Weather Advisory from the National Weather Service is in effect until 9 o'clock Wednesday morning.
